Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, issued the following statement regarding the nomination of Alexander Acosta to serve as Secretary of Labor.

Byrne said: “Alex Acosta has a clear record of protecting American workers and upholding the law. From his time on the National Labor Relations Board to his service as a U.S. Attorney, he has the background and experience necessary to excel as Secretary of Labor. I hope the Senate will act quickly on this nomination because we need a Secretary of Labor in place to help move forward our efforts to support American workers and bring workforce policies into the 21st Century.”
